    Tube Res Pump Combo

    I am looking at using either a primochill tube res with d5 pump mounted to base of tube or the EK version. I need to be able to use the top of the res as the inlet port. Ever where I look they all say not to use the top as the inlet and wondering why? If I get the primochill 3 port top I should be able to use the side as the inlet or on the EK version I would need to get the multi top and use a aqua pipe. Am I correct in saying so or not. I am not sure why you cant use the original top that the primo chill included as there are 4 port there. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you

    Someone must have used a d5 enabled tube res and use top port of tube for inlet. Just wondering if a aqua tube is needed if i plan the route this way. If aqua tube is needed it obviously screws into underside of top cap but is there enough threads on outside of cap for a fitting? New to trying a custom loop in next few months. Thank you for any input on is there a better d5 enabled tube res better than other

    the problem whit using the top as return is that you will let air in to the top part in the loop.
    if it is a radiator it will fill the rad whit air and it will not cool that good as it would be if it was full of coolant.
    and you will use the top to fill up the res whit coolant.

    I get the air going in but if the top was a multi top as if i had a return in the top to a aqua tube and use another port on the top to fill the res would the air bleed out as it wouldnt be sealed till it was done bleeding. I may just stick to using the inlets and outlets at pumphead i guess
